Mission Statement

Our mission is to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. That single purpose drives all we do. The need for our work is beyond question.

Heart disease and stroke remain major threats to the public health of our nation. These threats are expected to increase over the next 10 years.

Many of the key metrics in the 2010 goal of the American Heart Association were achieved early, including exceeding a 25% reduction in deaths from heart disease and stroke.

The 2020 strategic goal for the American Heart Association is to improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20% while continuing to decrease deaths from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by 20%.


One of the American Heart Association key goals is to increase volunteer engagement by 25%.

Volunteers have been the lifeblood of the American Heart Association since its inception more than 80 years ago. That giving and selfless spirit continues today throughout all of our fundraising activities. You have a chance to help spread knowledge to Americans regarding their No. 1 health threat.

Year in and year out, our dedicated, committed and encouraging volunteers are the champions of behind our successes. These self-sacrificing volunteers are the heart and soul of our organization.

Remember, our work is not finished. Despite all the knowledge that has been shared, heart disease remains the No. 1 killer of all Americans.

Please consider joining our team of caring, devoted and loyal volunteers. Think of the impact and results you can make.
